RB Shonn Greene Unlikely To Be In New York Jets Plans
Shonn Greene delivered a workmanlike effort for the New York Jets this season, churning out 1,063 yards as a between-the-tackles bruiser, but Greene possesses little burst (his 53-yard TD run to ice the Chargers in the 2009 divisional playoffs now feels like a fever dream), and his abilities as a receiver out of the backfield leave something to be desired.
In other words, Greene has value, but he's replaceable. ESPNNewYork.com's Rich Cimini speculated Tuesday that Greene -- a pending free agent -- is "as good as gone" in 2013. Marty Mornhinweg is the team's new offensive coordinator, a West Coast mind who covets versatility in his tailbacks.
Tony Sparano is history, as is "Ground and Pound." The Jets are closing the book on an era, and Greene is unlikely to be part of what's next.
